WA allows you to actually hold a koala, and this large park set in bushland is the only place to do so. You can also feed kangaroos, wallabies, and emus wandering in natural enclosures, see wombats and dingoes, walk through an aviary housing Aussie native birds, and see wild water birds on the ponds. The Caversham Wildlife Park in the Swan Valley has a bigger, more intriguing range of native species, but does not allow koala cuddling. It's hard to get here without a car.
